In recent years, minimally invasive procedures for facial rejuvenation have become more popular... In 2012, the official statistics of the American Society of Plastic Surgery showed that the cosmetic surgical procedures decreased 12% when compared with 2000, but in the same time period, minimally invasive cosmetic procedures increased by more than 130%... Recently, novel polypropylene barbed threads sealed with distal mesh and temporal fixation mesh were introduced in the market with the name REEBORN (PrestigeMedicare, South Korea)... The REEBORN threads consist of 5 parts from distal to proximal as follows: (1) a smooth part that is used as a guidance for the insertion to the needle, (2) a segment with cogs, (3) mesh segment, (4) proximal cogs segment, and (5) smooth segment for fixation to the mesh and deep temporal fascia (Fig. 1)... The advantages of the REEBORN barbed threads are the increased tensile strength and the placement in the sub-SMAS plane... Furthermore, a separated segment of mesh is provided for the fixation to the deep temporal fascia, increasing the stability of the threads and the longevity of the lifting effect... The thread placement in a deeper plane compared to other threads reduces the suture extrusion and also the traction line during rest, and animation is avoided... The proximal end of the threads is fixed to a mesh, and the deep temporal fascia and the distal free ends were cut... Our preliminary results using REEBORN threads for facial rejuvenation are satisfactory... Seven patients completed minimum follow-up of 6 months (6–13 months)... During this period, the lifting effect was maintained and the patients were satisfied with the final result... None of the patients experienced major complications necessitating thread removal... Longer follow-up and more studies are necessary to prove the safety of the procedure and the longevity of the results (Fig. 2).

A, The needle, trocar, and cannula were used to create a sub-SMAS plane and thread placement. B, A mesh was used for the thread fixation to the deep temporal fascia. C, The barbed threads consist of 5 parts, which from distal to proximal are the following: (1) a smooth part that is used as a guidance for the insertion to the needle, (2) a segment with cogs, (3) mesh segment, (4) proximal cogs segment, and (5) smooth segment for fixation to the mesh and deep temporal fascia.
